Min : - Max :

Application Deadline:

Online communities can congregate around a shared interest, but can be spread across multiple websites. There may be more than one website to go to find any one online community. Their meaning can change depending on who is defining them. Universally, however, there are things that show signs of a community. They are:

  • Content: articles, information, and news about a topic of interest to a group of people
  • Forums or newsgroups and email: so that your community members can communicate in delayed fashion
  • Chat and instant messaging: so that the community members can communicate more immediately.​

Green Hectares will support existing online communities by linking these communities through various channels that they have in place. Creating a collective meeting space for the five main areas of:

  • Crops
  • Environment
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Livestock
  • Rural Development

Min : - Max :

Application Deadline:

The Community Connector Program (CCP) facilitates effective and sustainable use of resources, experts, spaces, and programs already available to the community while encouraging people to connect, collaborate and learn from and with each other.

Based on the premise that every rural community is unique and has the capacity to shape its own future, the CCP provides a model for community development that is adaptable and community-driven. The success of the program hinges on local community action and champions for the project. The CCP establishes regional Community Connector projects in communities in partnership with Green Hectares.

Through this partnership arrangement, the local community has ownership in the project but gains a replicable model and support from Green Hectares. Partnering communities are required to provide financial or in kind support for this position and in return Green Hectares hires a local facilitator, provides training and mentorship, manages the project and provides useful outcomes and information back to the community.
